Garmin software


Recommended Posts

Just got my Edge 800 yesterday - Itching to use it now!!!! Doesnt have any local maps on though, so : what software to use?


Im not keen to pay R1299 for the Topo maps.


Anyone here use the Birdseye software? Or what other options are there?


Also, where can I search for maps that other people have ridden?

Thx Thug - had a look at the link. Seems very technical? Does it show the "maps" the same as Google earth?

I have never used those maps on the 800 but used it on my old 705.


If you are a MTB'er have a look at http://openmtbmap.org/


Not too technical, you download the map and just replace the .IMG file on your garmin. There should be full instructions on what to do.
